As someone who’s not touched code in 20+ years, the world has changed considerably. Dom’s new book is a great refresher on some of the fundamental theories of front-end development, coupled with an insightful dive into how front-end developer roles are structured in today’s world. Plenty of jumping off points for further investigation, and something I’d recommend for those new to (or looking to refresh in) the world of development.
